MILFORD, Del., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Delaware Governor Jack Markell
today joined with PSEG Solar Source, Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation
(DEMEC), juwi solar, Inc. (JSI) and Sunolar Power (Sunolar) to dedicate the
PSEG Milford Solar Farm. The 15-megawatt facility, located in Milford, Del.,
is the state's largest solar farm.

The 80-acre PSEG Milford Solar farm uses approximately 62,000
crystalline-silicon solar panels to generate enough solar energy to power
approximately 9,000 homes when the sun is shining. Its pollution-free energy
displaces approximately 12,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually – the
equivalent of removing about 2,300 cars from the road.

"The Milford Solar Farm helps point the way forward toward a sustainable
future for all," said Randall Mehrberg, president-PSEG Energy Holdings and
executive vice president, strategy and development. "This isn't just any
facility, but one that is important to an emerging green economy. Projects
like this testify to the strong partnerships that have made solar energy a
growing part of America's energy mix, to the benefit of our nation's energy
security, economy and the environment.

Gov. Markell called the solar farm a glimpse into Delaware's future.

"The Milford Solar Farm is a great fit with Delaware's commitment to a future
of clean, renewable energy sources," Gov. Markell said. "The project's
far-reaching benefits began with the construction jobs it brought to the
Milford area and will continue with many years of power production and
economic benefits for the central part of our state."

Collin O'Mara, Delaware's Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and
Environmental Control, said that the project reflects Delaware's growing
national leadership in deploying a cleaner mix of energy sources.

"Now more than ever, it is critical that we adopt cleaner, cheaper and more
secure local electrical generation that increases our competitiveness, reduces
air pollution, improves public health, and creates jobs," said Secretary
O'Mara. "Through this important Milford project, DEMEC, PSEG, and JSI are
helping to lead Delaware toward a clean energy future and demonstrating that
we can have both a strong economy and a healthy environment."

DEMEC will purchase the electricity generated by the solar farm through a
20-year power purchase agreement.

"This project again demonstrates that DEMEC and its municipal utility members
are leaders in the deployment of solar generation resources in Delaware," said
DEMEC President and CEO Patrick E. McCullar. "Of the 43.8 megawatts of
installed or committed solar generation resources in Delaware, a clear
majority (26.5 megawatts, or 61 percent of the total) is installed in DEMEC
municipal service territories. This becomes an even more striking statistic
when you consider that DEMEC municipal service territories make up less than
15 percent of electric service in the entire state. DEMEC is committed to the
continued deployment of economic renewable energy projects for the benefit of
our communities."

JSI acquired the partially-developed project from Sunolar in mid-2012, after
which JSI, Sunolar, PSEG and the City of Milford worked together to get the
project ready for construction. JSI served as the engineering, procurement and
construction contractor and will manage the day-to-day operation of the plant.
The $50 million project occupies 80 acres in Kent County. The construction of
Milford Solar created approximately 100 jobs.

"The Milford Solar project is the fifth solar PV project we have built in the
United States that has a nameplate capacity of more than 10 megawatts," said
Michael Martin, CEO of juwi solar, Inc. "Our site team worked tirelessly to
build this project over a 90-day timeframe – including by celebrating
Thanksgiving onsite and enduring the effects of Superstorm Sandy – in order to
safely achieve commercial operation before the end of the year 2012."

PSEG Solar Source owns four additional solar projects, all of which were built
by JSI. A sixth solar project, the 19MW PSEG Badger 1 Solar Farm is currently
under construction near Phoenix, Arizona.

The others are:

  oThe PSEG Queen Creek Solar Farm – a 25.0 MW DC solar farm in Queen Creek,
  oThe PSEG Wyandot Solar Farm - a 12.0 MW DC solar farm in Wyandot, Ohio. At
    completion it was the largest solar farm in Ohio.
  oPSEG Jacksonville Solar Farm - a 15.0 MW DC solar farm on 100 acres in
    Jacksonville, Florida; at completion it was the second largest solar farm
    in Florida.
  oThe PSEG Mars Solar Garden - a 2.2 MW DC facility located adjacent to Mars
    Snackfood's U.S. headquarters in New Jersey.
